Miss Mattie Akin Died Wednesday at Mrs. Durham

Miss Mattie Akin, aged 88 years of age, died at the home of Mr. and Mrs. E.R. Durham early Wednesday morning after an illness of several weeks. Miss Akin had been in feeble health for sometime, but her death came as a surprise to her scores of relatives and friends.

Miss Mattie was a member of the Crawfordville Baptist church since early womanhood, and was a staunch and beloved member. Funeral services were conducted at Corinth Baptist church Thursday morning at 11 o'clock.

Miss Mattie has been residing for a number of years with her niece, Mrs. E.R. Durham, at the old Akin homeplace. She is survived by a number of nephews and nieces and scores of friends who regret the death of this beloved lady.

We extend to the bereaved ones our tenderest sympathy in their sad loss of their aunt.
